day 2238 – team dinner

team dinner after a rough game where we got shut out and outplayed in all ways. we were beaten five times before our goalie pulled out in the second period because of a knee injury and we had to play six players instead. at that point all the referee could for us was to speed up the game by playing running time. at least we had a good dinner at myst to make up for the miserable loss

day 2032 – post game hyack

post game team dinner after a game we lost with minutes left in the game. the team played sound defensively, and i felt i had a solid game as a defense. first time having a penalty called against me, an interference penalty when i laid a hip check on one of the wingers. i had a lot of fun playing this game, much of it had to do with the quality of hockey instead of fending ourselves from fighters. it’s must win games from here on or our season will be over

day 1983 – fools on ice

the zamboni usually swoops in immediately and leaves no time for players to get off the ice after the game. being a late game, and the last game of the night, there wasn’t anyone ushering us out. the girls took our sweet time getting off the ice; decided to stay on ice and take an bunch of photos and videos. we had the whole sheet of ice to ourselvees so naturally we wanted to capture all the weird things we wouldn’t normally get to do. we had so much fun fooling around post game that we almost forgot we the boys were waiting for us

day 1864 – team platters

typical platter choice of the team after a squirtle squad game. there are quite a few alcoholics on the team so pitchers of beer are also staples, along with nachos. it is the official start of delta coed fall season and a win registered for the squirtle is a strong start to the season. we already have more wins than we did for all of delta spring season. i’m sticking to playing the ‘d’ for this team to learn more. of course there’s plays i wish i to redo, but i think i held up in the back end for the most part

day 1762 – potted one

the scheduling is not spaced evenly so playing second jabba game in three days. i wasn’t sure how i’d play tonight since my limbs were feeling shaky as i was driving to the rink. to my surprise, i netted my first goal going upstairs from a nice feed. it was a physical game for me and i got belted a handful of times, though i got up and stayed in the play. i also got my share in the first period as i collided with someone and i was the one left standing. my game is coming along but i still need to learn to be more ready to accept passes at any point

day 1720 – wings night

my first full game slotted at defense and it was nerve-wracking but lots of fun. i wasn’t confident with my backward skating and defensive positioning so i was worried i’d let the team down. i trusted that i had decent hockey iq so i was in position most of the time and lucky to have my d-partner when i wasn’t. i must admit it was quite fun to play on the back end; i wouldn’t mind playing there once in a while just to get a different perspective of the game and learn something new. the squad went crazy after the game and ordered platters of eighty wings and nachos

day 908 – post week one

week one of rdl season four in the books and it was a successful one. the gang having post dodgeball late night snack – their late night snack. playing together as a team for the first time, we had a very good night racking up nine wins against some tough opponents. i think this team has great potential and will only improve as the season goes on. for someone who went through a tough high rep training prior to dodgeball and exhausted to the point where putting gear on was quite difficult, i played ridiculously well. but why am i surprised as history shows i play better tired
